    Okay so other day I bought a domain from godaddy for 1$, got some free web hosting by 110mb, set-up the website, simple 3 pages. CPA offer on the 1st page that I don't even try to give attention, content gateway on 2nd page, then my own little twist method on the 3rd page to increase traffic.

    It's a very simple website here's my stats for the past 3 days (make note that I didn't start advertising the website until a bit later in the day yesterday, no programs were used at all since I'm new to CPA... so all the advertising was hand-done by me on just a few websites):

    http://i49.tinypic.com/5layq0.jpg

    There's the stats from my network and Histats summary. I guess my conversions on my CPA stuff is like 1:7.5?

    So start-up: 1$
    Profits: ~190$
    Time spent: About 4 hours total?(really didn't put a lot of effort into this because I didn't have much faith)

    I know it's not much, but here's the amount of work I put into the website...

    I posted 1 youtube video, commented on about 25 videos that had the same keywords as my youtube video with my link to my website.

    I answered about maybe 35 or so yahoo answers questions, all of them had my link in it.

    Posted on 1 forum about 4 times(each time the account got banned, but I was able to have my posts up for a good 25 mins or so on the forums each time, maybe longer not sure)

    Then started to check out Twitter about 2 hours ago or so... posted 1 tweet with all related keywords and my website, then made like 7 new twitter accounts and re-tweeted my tweet. So I guess like 8 tweets?

    From just that little bit of advertising over the past 2 days, this is the stats I've got from it so far. Now if I had like some pro SEO guy that could get the website name all over the place like you guys do... idk how lol, been trying to learn it's not easy. Then I'm sure the stats could be like 10-fold.

    So my question is, how much could I sell this website/domain .. basically everything that's put into this project right now for? Like with this traffic and conversions, what could this go for? I'm not sure I like having to hand-post my website all over the place I feel like a small molecule in a big big ocean the way I'm advertising...

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, thought there'd be no better place to ask then here because you guys seem to know your stuff! If a reputable member here comes and asks for the link to check it out, then I'll gladly show him/her... but I won't post up the link to the site publicly here.

    So anyways, any information on this would be great! Maybe if you have some tips on how to up my advertising power to get more traffic. Maybe some recommended programs(only free ones please! I like to see what I can do with little to no startup).

    EDIT: in the time it took to write this, I've had about 150 more views and I made another 10$ from my CPA offers. Hehe :)

    Well, after reading it doesn't appear that your traffic is automated (organic, PPC) but rather the user has to work at it to make the money, so that'd be a decrease in the value right there. Why not take the money you earned and outsource the traffic building to different people that deal with those field. If you have something that earns money like that, than you should scale up!

    If your keen on selling something, write an ebook and sell it to WF or DP.

    Thats my recommendation though.

    All I do really is post up my link on different places, yahoo answers, 1 forums(of millions? lol), and youtube comments. That's all, so I think that's sorta automated traffic right? I mean they come to the site, hit the gateway and there we go CPA ad filled out! So it's not like... I have to really work at it, I'm sure there's people who post on all 3 of those things and more of them auto without work. Would work same way right?

    Okay so from the time that I went to sleep (4 am) and woke up... hour ago or so. I made another ~100$, with 725 clicks and 87 conversions. Roughly 8:1, I'm not that great with CPA but I think that's pretty good? Ever since I did what I listed above all I've done is answer a few Yahoo Answers questions now and then. Not a lot but a few.

    So nobody knows what a site like this could be worth?
